Taylor Swift Long, Wavy, Blonde Hairstyle
Try Taylor Swift's romantic waves for dates and weddings -- they'll make everyone swoon. To get her look: 1. Coat hair with curling lotion or mousse and comb through, then blow dry with a diffuser. 2. Make a deep side part and begin wrapping 2-inch sections of hair around a triple-barrel curling iron, curling hair in the same direction all the way around your head. (Don't have one of those gadgets? You can use a 3/4-inch curling iron, too -- just hold it sideways to get a zigzag-like, spiral curl.) 3. Smooth with shine serum and mist with hairspray to set.

Katherine Heigel's sleek updo works best for a formal, evening occasion. Tips to get this look: 1. If your hair is damp, dry it completely straight using a paddle brush. 2.

Then smooth the top layer (closest to the part). 4. Finally, twist all your hair back into a bun in the mid-back of your head and secure with clips. Then, spray any flyaways with holding spray (remember, the look here is sleek).

(You can also use hot rollers on dry hair.) 3. Release and finger-comb waves. 4. Touch any curls up with a curling iron if needed.
